Jalapeño Popper Mummies – the eyes

You can make eyes out of so many different things, just be creative. Candy eyes are cute but, to be honest, they taste a little….sweet.

You can also use a straw and pop out small circles from a jalapeño. 

Another option are eyes from the craft store, but make sure they are removed before eating.

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes
Servings: 6


  • 6 Jalapeños
  • 2 Sliced of Bacon – cooked and chopped
  • 4 oz. Cream Cheese – Softened
  • 4 oz. Sour Cream
  • ½ cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • ¼ cup Shredded Pepper Jack Cheese
  • 1 can Crescent rolls or dough sheet
  • Candy Eyes


  • Preheat your oven to 350F.
  • Slice the jalapeños in half length-wise, and scoop out the seeds. Be careful the seeds will leave a lasting impression on anything you touch afterwards. I usually use a 1/4 teaspoon to help because it’s small enough to fit into the pepper without breaking it. I insert it at the top, spoon down and scrape along the bottom of the pepper.
  • Mix together the bacon, cream cheese, sour cream and cheeses until combined evenly.
  • On a baking tray, lined with parchment paper, lay out your peppers.
  • Using a spoon, fill your peppers with bacon and cheese mixture until they are stuffed.
  • Now, to make these poppers into mummies…
    You will cut 1/8th or so wide piece off of lengthwise.
  • Wrap it around the stuffed jalapeño peppers in a mummy like form, use your imagination and have fun.
  • Bake at 350F for 25 minutes until the cheese is bubbly and the mummy wrap is brown.
  • Top with candy eyes.
